's rumors that there's more to come in these disclosures. whistle blowers have suggested the n.s.a. whistle blower that there's more that we don't know that we should though. will you or will some of your colleagues, are you willing to use the privilege that constitutional privilege that's outlined and used in the 1960 to see put that into the record so that we, the public can see that kind of thing? >> you're referring to the speech and debate in the constitution. we've already gone so far beyond that in what's already been disclosed. every time there's a new disclose that you are comes out, the people in charge, like general alexander are asked is there anything else. they always say no, and then there's something else. >> i got to ask one last question on this topic, before we go to the break. you know, you mentioned the fourth amendment. i know that you've got to include it in one of the bills, the provision sailing that you can't vital the fourth amendment, but they're clearly vitals it with this spying. i can't imagine how it would be a matter of dispute. it's the most plain reading a

to make an opening statement about the nsa and major changes in the program of collecting met d meta-data becaf all the criticism he has got. people are anticipating and buzzing about that. we got into the east room, 20 minutes ahead of time. everybody gets their seats, and then they give the two-minute warning. the president comes in, and he covered a whole range of topics. this was really a media news conference. i'm sure you read and heard a lot about it. he talked about immigration reform. he talked about whether or not there would be a government shutdown. he talked about larry summers and janet yellen as new chairman of the fed. and he talked about putin. he said that putin sits in a slouch like's a high school likl student sitting in the back chair of the room like he's a high school student. he talked about the olympics, there was no way we were going to boycott the olympics but we were going to defend lgbt and coming home with a medal is the best way to combat bias in russia. then he spent the rest of the time talking about nsa, the spy program, and that's when he started. h
're going to do some revisions here at the n.s.a., a little course correction, if you will. one thing we're going to do is an independent board of outsiders who will help us determine if we're doing the right thing with the n.s.a. and protect civil liberties and certainly protect against abuses. we find out today who will be actually picking that board, shepherding it and in the words of the administration, establishing the group. that will be the outsider known as james clapper, the head of the n.s.a. i think they're trying to make us l.o.l. ok? i think this is preposterous. lindsey, do you believe that the head of the n.s.a. might pick an independent board that would then say that he's doing everything wrong? >> i have a hard time believing that, and i mean, i have a hard time toughing this guy at all, since when he was asked directly if the n.s.a. was collecting data on american citizens, he answered unequivocally no only a find out a couple months later that yeah, they're collecting a lot of data. >> he says now he'll pick an independent board. i'm glad you pointed that out. we got t
america's underpants. i wonder what our prison cells will look like when the nsa has us all arrested for thought crime. that's spectacular. [ applause ] >> that's a huge conspiracy theory. that's like way off the reservation. >> stephanie: that and a few burns and we're ready to go. >> we need to pad captain america's underpants. >> stephanie: who got to teach spinning class yesterday? who was on the big girl bike? >> i didn't teach it but the instructor is injured and she asked me to ride for her yesterday. >> stephanie: i could not be prouder of our little girl.

, because more and more members of congress are concerned over the extent of nsa's spying on us, as we vealed by edward snowden, president obama convened a meeting of republicans to discuss how we can get the proper balance between national security and our right of privacy. and you can look for some legislation which will restrict nsa's spying. we'll tell you all about it right here on current tv. iq will go way up.

there, chris lavoie, jim ward. before we -- lots of big news obviously, nsa, all of that stuff. however, more importantly, nancy in ohio says omg, thanks to listening to a steph cast, only $4.95 a month, and then taking a shower that sound of trying to get the last drops of shampoo out of my bottle will never sound the same. it sounds exactly like turtle sex. eh, eh. >> stephanie: you don't want to wait. just that last little -- i apologize for that. [ applause ] >> wow! >> stephanie: all right. >> she thought of this when she was in the shower. >> it sounded like someone else's faucet? >> stephanie: right. the guy didn't repair his faucet correctly. that's how it sounds when he needs water. all right. in the meantime, because we should just start monday, we should start the week with some weirdness. >> yeah? >> stephanie: rocky mountain mike for some reason has decided to combine turtle sex, dana loesch, cody the screaming dog and barry white. why not? >> because he can. ♪ >> stephanie: that's weird. [dana loesch screaming] >> wow. >> like having sex with mitch mcconnell. >> stephani
you call anyone, every time i call anyone, the nsa gets information about that call. there has been extension reporting about e-mails, about log on and off your computer, about google searches and all in the name of protecting us from foreign attacks. i'm glad the nsa does its job well with regard to determining or avoiding or defeating foreign attacks. that does not in any way justify the pervasive spying on americans that's been reported on now for the last two months. >> john: is it going to work, congressman? do you think it will put public fears on american citizens to rest because this will give us the illusion or at least the impression that our government is doing this purely to protect americans? >> listen, americans are relatively intelligent people and i don't think you can fool them to that degree. no one could possibly believe that the nsa should get a report if every time they called their pizzeria and asked for a pepperoni deep dish pizza and somehow that's meant to protect them from al-qaeda. that doesn't make any sense at all. that's the system we live under right n
start on the n.s.a., great panel, ana kasparian, legendary cohost of "the young turks." >> that's right, legendary. >> on theyoungturks.com. things that should not have been forgotten were forgotten about how good she is. you should appreciate that lord of the rings reference. >> i got it. >> john iadrola. while you're on the web, hello, meteorite.com, noah roth man. i got away from your nickname, the roth man prophecies, which i've got to get back to. [ laughter ] cenk: all right. let's get started on the n.s.a. president obama was on the tonight show, talked to jay leno and talked about spying, really the journalist you want to talk about spying about. >> intelligence gathering is a critical component to counter terrorism. obviously with your mr. snowden and the disclosures of classified information, it's raised a lot of questions for people. a lot of these programs were put in place before i came in. i had skepticism and i think we should have a healthy skepticism about what government's doing. i had the programs reviewed. we put in some additional safeguards to make sure there is fe
you are on all of those nsa stuff. this is what's going to happen. all of our conspiracy theory friends are going to say i deliberately waited to do all of the stuff when jim wasn't here. and my story is that he's having a colonoscopy. not here to defend himself. no, we've been getting into -- what would you call it, chris, a spirited debate. >> yes. >> stephanie: about the nsa stuff and snowden, hero, traitor, blah, blah, blah. anyway, paul in houston writes steph, listening to jim ward talk about the nsa makes me want to pull my eyelashes out. this is the same guy who says the founders couldn't have imagined assault weapons when writing the second amendment. paul in houston. [ applause ] i just -- i just think -- and again, you can fill in for jim and say i'm an idiot. but it is a tough balance between security and privacy. you can't have 100%. i don't think of either. >> are there ways to give up less of your -- i don't want to say freedom but when you engage in facebook and twitter, you are engaging in perhaps an arena that might allow you to be spied on more so that you do
? >> the timing is so convenient. >> it's too convenient. >> yeah. >> the nsa is under attack, and there is a red alert, and they almost lost the vote in the house which is unheard of on spying. so they are like don't we have something laying around that is incredibly scary. >> yeah, and the first segment of this show should be now the nsa is working with the dea to give information on american drug traffickers to prosecute them. so there's more information about how the nsa is spying on us, and instead of using that for national security, they are using it to prosecute americans for drug use and drug trafficking. every week there is a story about how we'll being violated, and this is a great distraction. but when is it news that al qaeda wants to go after us? >> yeah, the question is, is item innocent. 19 embassies they shut down unofficially for the weekend, and then for the week, because they are saying it's coming. it's coming, but two things here. number 1, the body bombers, we looked into this. there was stuff about that in the media at the end of last year. so it isn't new. all of a sudden
, to me, that's a big tummy rub for the nsa program. >> stephanie: i know. but then i can't help when i hear people that i trust whethe% it is al franken or dianne feinstein, if we get hit again because of that tool, rand paul, say good-bye to all of our civil liberties. and i include glen greenwald in that jack a lope. jim, you're sometimes on the side of this, i understand. that's the piece i was thinking. i think it might have been tomasky. talking about this. that's what he really fears is that if we get hit again, forget any of our civil liberties. that's why i think there has to be a balance between, you know, this nsa stuff and security. and i know i will get more letters calling me a neocon. jim, you have to believe there are terrorists throughout that want to kill us. >> sure. >> stephanie: little disconcerting there are the prison breaks, al-qaeda people everywhere and anniversary of 9-11 is coming up this sunday. the end of ramadan. i think there is a reason. >> a month from sunday. >> stephanie: right. there was some reason they thought yesterday might have been a target. it
with members of congress to try to allay concerns about the nsa program. part of the reason congress is so upset about is because they didn't know about it--until edward snowden told them. that's the definition of a whistle blower. forget us, even congress didn't know. now the white house is turning around and saying look, look, i see you're all upset. but the guy who let you know about the nsa program, and you and your representatives know about the nsa programs, the russians, i can't believe they're hiding him. we need to get that guy. screw that, snowed den, run, don't come to the this country. are you nuts? >> i wish he could prove that it was not espionage but it was whistle blowing, but our system is broken in mean ways and we saw that with bradley manning. what you were saying before, saying that he was a coward, this is a very, i think, a sad emotional appeal to get people turned against him. they can't point to actual damage done, they have to hope that labeling him a coward wil,d just like they like to label leaker as pedophiles and sexual predators, things like that. >> i think
to the united states. at this point, they are angry at edward snowden for releasing these secrets about the n.s.a. leaks. they don't care about precedent. they want russia to give him back. people in power say we want to give him a fair trial here in america pap lot of us are very skeptical about that. you make a very good example here. i don't think that they look at it in the same vein. >> john lewis came out today and keith ellison, the congressman from minnesota said much the same thing, that edward snowden is walking in the tradition of martin luther king. do you agree or not? >> i think what martin luther king did was write a letter from the birmingham jail, not moscow. he faced his crime when he could have had an opportunity to flee the country. he didn't do that. i think it's a very good thing he went to jail to challenge the congress of the country. he went to jail and wrote from jail. he was trying to challenge the legitimacy of the law by showing it's i will legitimacy in practice. i think edward snowden should come home and face the music. to me, that is what makes sense. if he's righ
about the nsa or stop and frisk? >> caller: both. >> stephanie: both. well, so you don't think there should be any balance between security and privacy. >> caller: no, i'm saying with surveillance, the nsa, everybody is in an uproar about it. if you did nothing wrong, what are you worried about? i don't send texts because i don't know how to. >> stephanie: you are safe because you are a [ inaudible ]. >> stephanie: you didn't learn how to send texts until two years ago. >> stephanie: well, that was because i had to have sex, but that was a different story. bob in l.a. hi, bob. >> caller: they -- come on, brain -- what made us so afraid was that new york plains getting whacked to the buildings. from that we got stop and frisk. here in l.a. the lapd are recording your movements of your car through the city, put it into a database, they can pull it up any time they want to see where your car was. they shoot pictures of it in your driveway and people around it. >> stephanie: yeah, and one of the ways they are talking about being able to adjust stop and frisk is cops all have camera
that this might be something that the administration is doing in effect to justify the n.s.a. hoovering up of information. >> joe, what you're saying is that this is all edward snowdens fault. if he didn't come out and talk about the n.s.a. spying and how they're spying on oh us in ways we weren't aware of, they wouldn't have to leak these next stories about how they intercepted communications to prove why they are spying on us is justified, so it all goes back to the beginning, he hadward snowden is a traitor. >> it all makes sense now. there is all this orwellian language going on about this. >> margaret. >> still in country, can you explain why the evacuation didn't happen fully until today? is it correct to say the evacuation is now complete? >> first, it is inaccuracies to call it an evacuation. this is a reduction in staff. we are still -- we have not suspended operation. obviously you all know that the embassy there is closed through the date that i mentioned, and we'll have updates on them as we have them. there also continue to be commercial flights out of yemen which is something
is all this sub at her final to distract us from the n.s.a. scandals. david gregory would not ask that tough a question on meed the press. >> good to jay for that, good on jay in the old slang. a president risks that sort of thing. when nixon went on, everything had to be cleared beforehand, and they threw out his charming people, i called them, that would go over questions and throw out press questions that he was not to be asked. not that nixon, i'm sorry, the great un indicted co-conspirator had anything to hide, god knows. >> well, and you were on his enemies list. >> well, i hate to disappoint you. i saw a copy of the alleged enemies list and although i didn't make it, i did one day have the shock of being met by a mysterious limousine in los angeles, the beginning of a mystery novel. a guy sits down beside me, i don't know who he is, they're taking me to a t.v. show supposedly, but then flips open a laptop, there's richard mill house nixon, h.r.haldeman in the-value office. this is from the nixon audiotapes. what is cavett, anyway, oh, he's the worst. it's on you tube, you c
about michael shure. i don't know if he was working for the n.s.a. or using the force. mark compared mitt romney to whatever he compared him to, a star wars character, right? and everybody was like oh, my god, that's so interesting! there were at least 30 articles about that. >> i think that people -- >> people here freaked out. >> people care because what luke skywalker said. the media gets it wrong, too, but the media talks about important issues far more than the rest of the world, that's why when we see these numbers about the n.s.a. spying, it's like ahh. cenk: there's apparently a pull out today saying james clapper should be prosecuted for lying to congress. >> how many people know who he is? >> apparently enough to say that he should be prosecuted. >> you should get mark hamill to say he should be prosecuted. >> al gore, i know some folks felt he followed current and should have followed through and instead sold it and the report was that it was $500 million. first of all, he was part owner of current, right? he didn't just take it and put it in his pocket, and they had costs
know what the nsa is up to, we didn't fine out from the "washington post" or the "new york times." right? >> uh-huh. >> bill: so i don't blame him for not trusting the american media, and i think that it gets back to the question about -- and i have been in this debate with -- with many friends, well if he really thought was something was wrong with what nsa was doing, then he should not have blown the whistle, he just should have gone through the proper channels. yeah. now, imagine what reception snowden would have got if he had gone to the nsa leadership, or if he had gone to the cia or the white house. >> thank you very much, we appreciate your concern. here have a seat in the back of this unmarked car. >> bill: yeah. or imagine if he had gone to a lot of the main stream media. they wouldn't have touched it. so i got to tell you, when i see my colleagues in the media not doing their job -- and too often it is because -- just as he said they are afraid of being painted as anti-american as unpatriotic, or as anti-the current president of the united states, and so they just -- or
warming. the economy. and jobs. and by the way, nsa and spying and intelligence. and they're all, in a way, they're all also related. they're all part of the same agenda of how we move forward in a way that's best for the country. i don't think we can be -- i'm not saying you are. >> no, no. the interesting thing is, of course, that's what this economic thing is about. you had a lot of -- on the face of it, disparate issues tied up. you had immigration, healthcare and job security and student loans all kind together in this. >> bill: so on the nsa, the president's message, the way i read it friday, sitting there was this program is -- the nsa, they're doing a good job. they're doing a necessary job. they're not violating anybody's constitutional rights. it is not being abused in any way. you just don't understand it. and if you understood it better and if we explained it better, then everything would be hunky-dory. right? he didn't say he was going to change it in any way which i expected from the buzz ahead of time. that we were going to see some major changes. >> you know someone who's b
's father who lived here in pennsylvania. and who pointed out that none of the leaks in the nsa which is here in maryland, would have occurred if not for the sequester ordered here in washington, d.c. and and reluctantly agreed to by president obama who many right-wingers feel is from kenya. why do we have sequestration in the first place? well, w who is from texas, decided to occupy afghanistan right over here and then go to iraq for causing 9-11 even though most of the hijackers were really from saudi arabia right here. they got bogged down. war is really expensive when you're cutting tax on millionaires. since the u.s. had to pass sequester, the government had to let a lot of its d.c. employees go and all american employees go around the country including snowden who, if he hadn't been fired, would never have wound up at the tech firm, booz allen hamilton here in hawaii where he gave access about the nsa's program. about the firms located here in silicon valley. after whistle blowing "the guardian" based here in london, snowden fled to hong kong all the way over here where he sough
to "viewpoint." edward snowden's leaked revelation about the nsa set off a firestorm of outrage from americans from both the right and the left. president obama tried to douse the flames at his press conference on friday. >> obama: we can and must be more transparent. so i've directed the intelligence community to make public as much information about these programs as possible. we've already declassified unprecedented information about the nsa. but we can go further. >> john: the president said he'll work with congress to reform section 215 of the patriot act which deals with the collection of phone records. he'll also reform oversight of the foreign intelligence surveillance court and make the rationale for the collections public. but is he setting himself up for anotheriation where not much gets done and no one's happy? let's ask the smartest guy in the room, michael tomasky in d.c., a special columnist for "newsweek" and the "daily beast" and has been a treasured guest on our show. welcome back to "viewpoint." >> second smartest guy in the room. >> john: thank you and god bless your low st
for the drones -- >> bill: and nsa. >> and nsa, that is where a nice, small percentage of the country is especially when it comes to the war. that's where the majority is. people are done. with iraq. they're done obviously with afghanistan. they want to move on. and going out there and sounding hawkish or super hawkish, i mean does chris christie think he's going to win the presidency by what, outhawking the next democratic opponent or republican opponent? i don't know. maybe on the republican side it may work but it won't work in the general. >> bill: the other thing i find curious and where the split in the republican party has come to play is in the whole issue of immigration reform, right? you would think again, it would be a no-brainer, right? hey, we've got a problem. this is one way we can help fix that problem, right. instead, they just look -- john boehner refuses to bring the senate bill up for a vote. >> i think john boehner knows that if he did and he didn't open it up, he would lose. that there's no way -- >> bill: back to the hastert rule. >> the senate bill would not pa
have been in this whole discussion about the nsa, and snowden, and manning, and all of that, and i'm not unsympathetic to his talking about the pressure of being gay in the workplace and all of that. but i think chris just said i don't think that's an excuse for leaking zillions of documents involving our national security. >> no, of course not. here is the reality. i think manning and snowden don't belong in the same conversation most times. and i think bradley mannings release of the video, i think is clearly a whistleblower activity and deserved to be handled as such. the problem with bradley manning, is he released documents and material he did not even vet himself. and he gave it to someone who believed i think [ inaudible ] put the stuff out that is germane to a crime, and they accidentally on purpose released all of it. and not all of it was evidence of crime, and evidence of, you know, lies of the united states -- matter of fact a large majority wasn't. and a good portion of it was -- was just kind of normal classified secret material that other people don't need to see, an
information on classified nsa information on parameters said this. today. we have seen obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law, but the law is winning. i thank the russian federation for granting me asylum. jay carney said russia is jeopardizing diploma diplomatic relations with the u.s. by all allowing snowden to live there. >> we're extremely disdisappoi disdisappointed that russia would take this step, and not have snowden ex-spelled to the u.s. to face charges against him. he should be returned to the united states as soon as possible where he will be accorded full due process and protections. >> michael: sometimes i really don't believe that jay carney believes what he's saying. that was one of those moments. and a new poll released shows that majority of americans disagree with that. 55% think that edward snowden is in fact a whistle blower, while 45% think he is a traitor. jay carney issued a veiled threat saying they're considering a. : >> michael: joining us now from washington, d.c. one of our favorites, michael tomasky. great to have you back here.
congressmen have spoken out in favor of this, but they don't know much necessarily about what the nsa is doing. there was a big story in the guardian, saying members are being rejected in trying to find out what is going on. so are lawmakers sort of saying stuff that they don't know what they are saying. >> lawmakers, as you know, david like to follow the pack and take the safest position, and the safest position is say let's trust these are bad guys, sure they want to get us. >> stephanie: let's turn to some of the fighting among the parties right now. last week rand paul and chris christie, they had a big fight. they knocked heads. this week mitch mcconnell fighting off his primary challenger. he has even created a website saying bailout bevin calling this challenge a probailout kind of guy. is this good news for america? bad news for the republican party? both? the opposite? >> it's good news for the democratic party. if your enemy is committing suicide don't stop them and interrupt them. and the republicans are doing a nice job of taking themselves down. is it good for america? it is proba
